Atlantic (Ht}ri0itan Gklteg? 

"Wilson, the seat of Atlantic Christian College, is ideally- 
located for a college town. The main lines of two railway- 
systems pass through it. The Atlantic Coast Line, running 
North and South, makes splendid connection with all the 
branches of that system. The Norfolk and Southern, run- 
ning East and West, makes it easily accessible from these 
directions. With eighteen passenger trains passing through 
it each day and every train stopping, you are never far from 
home when at Atlantic Christian College. 

The environments of Wilson are equally as advantageous 
as its accessibility. A thriving town of about nine thousand 
population, having most of the advantages of a larger city, 
and yet you are not lost and unknown in the multitude. We 
are able to keep track of our students. They are known to 
the people of the town, and it is not long before those of real 
worth are recognized. In such a center of religious, politi- 
cal, and business influence our students come in contact with 
some of the greatest preachers, doctors, lawyers and business 
men of the State, and such opportunities are not to be under- 
valued. Wilson is a beautiful city, with good walks, electric 
lights, filtered water, successful sewerage system, and good 
health record. In the center of a prosperous farming sec- 
tion, it is a great cotton market and the greatest bright leaf 
tobacco market in the world. Its citizens are hospitable, 
courteous and cordial. Its churches, representing the lead- 
ing denominations, have handsome edifices of worship and 
are in a flourishing condition. 

The College Buildings stand in the center of a beautiful 
grassy plot of ground, shaded by oak and pine, in the north- 
ern part of Wilson, in a quiet section, admirably suited for 

The building is a beautiful two-story brick structure. It 
is modern in every respect, heated throughout by steam, 
lighted by electricity, and attached to the city water and 
sewer system. It fronts Whitehead avenue and Lee street, 
standing at the center of a six-acre campus. Its large audi- 
torium, with a seating capacity of over 500, the spacious 
dining hall, society halls, recitation rooms, and steam-heated, 


spacious bedrooms, make it one of the most conveniently ar- 
ranged buildings of the kind in the State. The College 
Building is also the young ladies' home, and the campus their 
recreation ground. 

Arrotttmnbattona fat Ifoung iHfott 

We want young men who have a definite purpose and high 
aspirations and who come with the intention of doing hard, 
honest work. The other type of young men has never re- 
ceived any recognition by our student body. They will not 
be retained. 

Our young men's home supplies a suitable residence for a 
limited number. This is also the President's home, so he is 
in constant touch with the life of the young men. 

Mrs. Garner, who has so successfully conducted the club 
for several years lives in the adjoining house. The cost of 
meals in the club has never averaged as much as $9.00 per 
month. The rooms are furnished, except pillows and cover, 
and the cost for room and light is $1.50 each per month. 
Pupils furnish their own fuel. Abundant supply of other 
rooms can be had in the neighborhood at about $4 per room.

Every morning the students and professors assemble in 
the college auditorium for chapel exercises. The services are 
conducted by members of the faculty and visiting ministers 
of the Gospel. Brief addresses and lectures are given on 
religion, morals, good manners, temperance, the choosing of 
professions and vocations of life, etc. Visitors are always 

Students are expected to attend religious services at some 
church on Sundays. 

Frequently young people going from home to college ad- 
vance mentally but retrograde morally. This is not true of 
Atlantic Christian College. "We care for character as well 
as intellect. AVe keep our students in a good moral atmos- 
phere, throwing about them proper restraints and safe- 
guards, and giving them counsel. 


IGifr at tty? (Eollrgp 

Life at the College is full of interest, overflowing with 
good cheer, and crowded with honest work. Ample oppor- 
tunity is afforded for recreation necessary for health and 
comfort. Croquet, tennis, basketball and other open-air 
amusements are encouraged. The home life is maintained as 
far as possible. It is not "all play and no work," nor "all 
work and no play," but work is the rule. "Diligence" is 
our watchword, and our motto, "Onward by effort." The 
government is kind and gentle, but firm and unwavering. 


College sports such as Tennis, Basketball and Baseball are 
encouraged by the College. The past season we have had 
one of the strongest ball teams in the State. Still athletics, 
while generally cultivated by the student body and encour- 
aged by faculty, has not become the chief factor in our 
college life. We have excellent tennis courts and one of 
the finest ball parks in the state. 

£>iubntt ©njatttzatfattH 

The students have formed three Societies for Literary de- 
velopment and general culture. These are the Alethian, 
Hesperian, and Demosthenian. The first two are composed 
of both young men and women. They meet fortnightly and 
their exercises consist of instrumental and vocal music, reci- 
tations, essays, discussions, and debates. 

These societies are among the most enjoyable features of 
student life at the College. 

The Demosthenian Society is made up of young men only. 
They recognized the value of practice in public address, and 
this society supplies a necessity in the development of the 
mind and life of young men. Essays, extemporaneous talks, 
orations, newspaper reviews, and debates constitute a large 
part of the work of this society.

A gold medal is offered by Mr. J. J. Privett, the jeweler, 
to the student in any department who is chosen to represent 
his literary society. The final contest will be held on the 
22nd of February, and each society will be entitled to two 
representatives. The medal is to be transferred the next 
year to the winner unless the student remains in the insti- 
tution and defends his claim.

Candidates for admission into any department must pay 
the matriculation fee of $2 before they are admitted to any 
class. They must be able to furnish satisi'ueiory testimonials 
of good character. 

To Preparatory. 

Pupils are admitted to the Preparatory on grade cards 
or certificates from former teachers without examination. 
They are supposed to have done work equivalent to seven 
grades of the graded schools. 

To College. 

Candidates for admission to the Freshman class, bearing 
the prescribed certificates of accredited Secondary schools 


will be admitted into the classes of the College without ex- 

Students, however, who are prepared for College classes 
may pursue them, while they are bringing up conditions in 
the Preparatory. 

Entrance requirements are designated in terms of units, 
a unit being a course of five periods weekly for a school 
year of thirty-six weeks. A minimum of fourteen units is 
required for admission to College. They are as follows: 

English, 3 units (Rhetoric and Literature). 

Latin, 3 units (Caesar 4 books, Cicero 4 orations, Virgil

Preparation in English should keep two ends in view: (1) The 
ability to speak and to write the language readily and correctly; 
(2) The ability to read with intelligence and appreciation. 

The candidate must, first of all, be able to spell, capitalize, and 
punctuate correctly. He must further show a practical knowl- 
edge of lOnglish grammar, including inflection, syntax, and sent- 
ence-structure; and familiarity with the elementary principles of 
rhetoric, including paragraph-structure, narration, and descrip- 

No candidate will be accepted in English whose work is seri- 
ously defective in point of spelling, punctuation, grammar or di- 
vision into paragraphs. 

Two lists of books are given, one for study, the other for read- 
ing. The examination on the books for study and practice (a) 
will presuppose the thorough study of each of the books named. 
The examination will be upon subject-matter, form, and structure. 

The second list (b) contains books to be read out of class. The 
candidate will be required to present evidence of a general knowl- 
edge Ol the subject-matter of these books, and to answer simple 
questions on lives of the authors. The form of examination will 
usually be the writing of a paragraph or two on each of several 
topics, to be chosen by the candidate from a, considerable number 
- — perhaps ten or fifteen — set before him in the examination paper. 
The treatment of these topics is degined to test the candidate's 


power of clear and accurate expression, and will call for only a 
general knowledge of the substance of the books.

Any student, who has maintained a good moral character 
during his course of study, and passed satisfactory exami-

All teachers, patrons and students are requested to note 
carefully the following: 

"Matriculation obligates all pupils to conduct themselves 
with propriety on all occasions, and to conform to all rules 
that may be made for their government. 

Parents should mail direct to the President of the College 
all drafts, checks and money orders, and not send through 

All communications concerning the pupils must be made 
to the President, and not sent through the pupils. This 
avoids many unpleasant misunderstandings. 

All pupils are required to be present at Chapel services 
and roll-call every morning, unless excused for special 

Meals will be sent to the rooms only in case of sickness, 
and by order of the College Matron. 

Young ladies are expected to keep their rooms in order, 
a j id any damage done to the furniture in the rooms or to 
the buildings will be charged to the offender, or to the occu- 
pants of the room if offender is not known. 

Each young lady, unless excused, is required to attend 
public worship on Lord's day morning, in company with the 
teacher in charge. 

Pupils are not permitted to spend the night out of the 
College without written consent of parents or guardians, 
and even then at the discretion of the President. "Written 
consent in every instance must be mailed direct to Pres- 

The President will not in any way be responsible for the 
conduct of boarding pupils remaining in town after the 
school year closes. 

As far as possible, dressmaking, dentistry, and photog- 
raphy should be attended to at home, as these things take 
time and thought from school work. 

Parents and guardians will receive a timely notice in case 
of serious sickness. Please inquire of President before tak- 
ing any action in case of sickness. 

Parents will furnish list of correspondents with whom 


they wish their daughters to correspond. None others will 
be allowed. Experience has shown this to be wise. 

Parents or guardians cannot give their daughters or 
wards permission, either by letter or while ' visiting them 
at the College, to deviate from any of the College rules or 
Young ladies visiting at the College, while our guests, 
are under the same rules as pupils. Reasonable privileges 
will be granted them when requests are made. 

Pupils inviting guests to remain over night at the College, 
must do so with the consent of the Lady Principal. 

.Parents desiring success and high standing from the 
pupils they have committed to our care will please note the 
following : 

(1). Have pupils present on the first day. 

(2). Insist on very few visits home. 

(3). Do not ask for them to leave for home to .spend any 
holiday until adjournment for such holiday. 

(4). While pupils are in the school they are under our 
controll, we must sometimes refuse requests made by par-

In this department of the School the larger number of 
pupils are enrolled. "We are striving to make the most thor- 
ough and conscientious preparatory school in the State. To 
this end the courses in this department have been strength- 
ened and enlarged for the coming year to meet the College 
entrance requirements of the best colleges and universities 
of the South. Our own College entrance requirements are 
raised to the standard. This department will have its own 
commencement day separate from the College. The first 
year of the preparatory presupposes the pupil to have done 
work equivalent to seven grades of the graded schools of 
the State.

Pupils applying for admission of standing in the Fresh- 
man class must furnish evidence by grade cards from accred- 
ited institutions or by examination that they have done work 
equivalent to our Preparatory Department. Deficiences may 
be made up in said school, but will not be allowed to count 
in application for degree. See entrance requirements. 

Realizing the great value of a thorough analytical study 
of standard literature and the necessity of a corresponding 
drill in original composition, a well planned course is pre- 
sented and will be required throughout the collegiate work. 


1 and 2. — American Literature — Abernathy. This course 
deals with the great body of literary productions in 
America from the Colonial period to the present time in 
an historical as well as a critical manner. Special emphasis 
is laid on the greater authors, attempting to interpret in 
their work the best American thought and life. Southern 
literature is given full attention. Occasional papers are re- 
quired. A more intensive study of American Prose and 
Poetry is gven in the post-graduate course.

study of Hawthorne, the Cambridge writers and other rep- 
resentative authors.

The object of a course in History is to give the student a 
knowledge of the events of the past. The real past, not the 
legendary. This end must be secured by a study of the 
natural conditions of the people and their country and, as 
far as practicable, of modifying influences. History is in- 
separably connected with the study of Literature, and is an 
essential feature in College work. 

1 and 2. — Myers' Medieval and Modern (Required.) 

The subject is pursued with the institutional idea in mind 

and the inductional and constitutional development of these 


(3), (4). This course will consist in reading a number 
of the briefer histories of Babyloia, Assyria, Greece, Rome, 
Germany, France, and England. Informal lectures and 
class discussion. 

5. — Constitutional History of the United States. 

6. — Civics. This course includes a careful study of the 

Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the 
United States and the present methods of government. It is. 


designed to follow the advanced course in American His- 


1 and 2. Livy — Books XXI and XXII. Horace, Odes and 
Epodes. Prose Composition. 

3 and 4. Tacitus — Agricola and Germania, Horace and 
Juvenal Satires. History of Latin Language and Literature. 

5 and 6. Selected Plays of Plautus and Terence ; Ele- 
giac Poets; History of Latin Language and Literature. 


These courses are intended to give a general knowledge 
of the language and literature of the Greeks, as well as the 
mental discipline which results from language study. The 
courses in New Testament Greek seek to familiarize the stu- 
dent with the forms and usages of the Hellenistic Greek, 
and to enable him to use the New Testament in its original 
language with facility. 

1 and 2. — Xenophon's Anabasis, four books; Symposium, 
and the Story of Cyrus. Composition one hour per week 
based on the text read. 

3 and 4. — Homer— The Iliad — Plato — The Apology, and 
selections from Phaedo.

Such has been the enlargement of the field of investiga- 
tion and discovery in this department that no one of the 
various studies embraced can be exhaustively studied. But 
the pupils can be put in deep sympathy with the works of 
God, and by observation and practical laboratory methods, 
they can be stimulated to perfect their knowledge in after 
years. Suitable apparatus and various plans are adopted in 
the class room and in the field and forest to invest these 
studies with a charm. A fee of $2.00 will be charged to de- 
fray expense of material.

Philosophy is reflection upon experience. It 1 as to do 
with mind knowledge and conduct. Psychology treats of 
the nature of mind, and its processes. Logic is the science 
of the value of mental process, and Ethics, deals with the 
ideals and laws of conduct. The History of Philosophy states 
and discusses historically the problems of human life and 
the universe as they have presented themselves to the 
greatest thinkers of the ages.

The aim of this department is to offer that which we be- 
lieve will most thoroughly prepare young men for the min- 
istry of the Word. Those who are prepared for the Fresh- 
man class in the College of Liberal Arts may complete this 
school in four years same as in the literary school. Those 
who have already received the A. B. degree from a recog- 
nized college may take a three years' course and receive 
the degree of B.D. upon the presentation of an accept- 
able thesis on some vital subject. Those not prepared to 
study for the ministry, will be allowed to take work in 
this , school according to their ability. 

No tuition is charged students preparing for the minis- 
try, but a definite amount of religious work will be as- 
signed them each week. To this work they will be expected 
to give six hours per week, and it is intended to give them 
practical experience in church work. When pupils are able 
to do regular preaching in near-by congregations they will 
be excused from other religious work.

The first great need of the earnest Christian is a knowl- 
edge of the facts of "The Book." The next is to see the 
real meaning of these. If every pupil in school would dili- 
gently apply himself to this course our churches in the 
coming generation would receive a mighty impulse. 

Questions of introduction will be (carefully considered in 
the study of each book. 

1. Quite a thorough study of the Pentateuch. The law 
of Moses will be systematized. This will prepare the stu- 
dent to clearly distinguish the Mosaic and Christian dispen- 
sations and to understand many passages in the latter 

2. A continuation of course 1, followed by a study of 
Joshua, Judges and Ruth. 

3. The historical portions of the Old Testament begin- 
ning with 1st Samuel. This period, much neglected, is of 
vast importance in showing the preparation for the new 
dispensation. It is also a splendid source of illustration for 


all who would live and teach spiritual truth. 

4. Is a continuation of course 3. An endeavor will be 
made to study the Prophets in their historic setting and 
learn the special message of each. This will give a full view 
of Jewish history to the Advent. 

5. Life of Jesus. Beginning where course 4 closes, a 
study will be made of the Jews in the time of Christ so that 
a true conception of the people and their social, political, 
and religious environments may help us to understand Him 
and His wonderful teaching. This will be followed by a 
careful study of the four Gospels. 

6. A continuation of course 5. 

7. Exegesis. The purpose of this course is to acquire 
skill in studying the Epistles. A brief study of the princi- 
ples of Hermeneutics will be made, and some of the Epistles, 
carefully analyzed.

This department will aim to meet the second great need 
of the man preparing for the ministry. If he understands 
well the teaching of "The Book," he must see also its work 
in meeting the needs of humanity through the centuries. 

1. The Apostolic Church, a careful study of Acts. of 

2. Following course 1, and bringing it down to 313, A. 
D. The great doctrinal discussions of this interesting pe- 
riod and the development of ecclesiasticism will be care- 
fully noted and discussed. 

3. The history of the church will be brought down to 
the beginning of the Reformation. 

4. The History of the Reformation led by Luther, Cal- 
vin, Knox, and others to the end of the 18th Century. 

5. The American Church and its growth in America. 
This is intended to give clear views of the development of 
the Religious problems of America, and will be followed by 
the History of the Reformation of the 19th Century led by 
the Campbell's and their co-laborers. 

6. A continuation of course 5. Lectures and much collat- 


eral reading will be assigned. This course is intended to 
thoroughly familiarize students preparing for the ministry 
of the Christian Church with the genius of that movement, 
It is optional with other students. 

This course seeks to provide the student with a thorough 
equipment in the fundamental arguments, in behalf of the 
Christian faith. It will enable him to me?t objections 
brought against the Religion of Jesus.

Wright's Elements of Practical Sociology will be used 
as lext-book, but additional lectures will be given. In this, 
time of social interest it is almost necessary that a minister 
have some knowledge of the principal social phenomena 
that are characteristic of American Society. 


1. Preparation and delivery of sermons. Dr. J. A. 
Broadus' treatise on the subject will be studied by the 
class, A written sermon will be presented by each member. 

2. This is a continuation of course 1. Sermons of some 
of the world's great preachers will be studied as types. The 
practical problems of the ministry to-day will be discussed.

The object of these courses is to give a good working 
knowledge of the Hebrew language. It is hoped that the 
student of the Bible will so fit himself in the study of the 
Biblical languages as not to be seriously handicapped in 
this age of Biblical criticism, 


In these courses he will obtain such hold upon the prin- 
ciples of the language as to enable him to use the Old Tes- 
tament with some degree of ease and accuracy. 

1. Grammar and Translation. This will include a de- 
tailed inductive study of Genesis, Chapters I-VIII as a basis 
for the mastery of the forms of the verb and noun. The 
weak verb will be given especial emphasis in the latter part 
of this course. Text — Harper's Introductory Hebrew 
Method and Manual. 

2. Reading and Grammar. The Book of Genesis will be 
completed in the course. Rapid sight reading in selected 
passages of easy historical Hebrew, and the acquisition of a 
good vocabulary in the Hebrew of the Old Testament, will 
be required. Daily work in Gesenire's Hebrew Grammar,

The Commercial Department of this institution 
is believed to afford the best possible facilities lor acquiring 
proficiency in those branches of study that are necessary 
to prepare a person for a business career. We believe there 
is no other similar school that gives more thorough, practi- 
cal and progressive instruction, and aids more of its pupils 
in securing pleasant and profitable positions than does this 

It is the purpose of this department to give the student a 
thorough business or stenographic training, fitting him or 
her to enter an office and take hold in such a way as to be 
successful from the start. We want students who desire 
to succeed and become useful, consequently have no room 
for drones. Our success will depend upon our being able 
to turn out capable men and women fully fitted to handle 
the most difficult positions, and it is impossible to do this 
with careless or indifferent pupils. 

In these days of intense business activity, business meth- 
ods are changing rapidly — old customs abolished and new 
methods introduced. The business man of to-day has 
neither the time nor inclination to teach his employees busi- 
ness methods or business practice, hence it is our aim to fit 
and prepare for him a thoroughly competent employee be- 
fore we send him out. 

Superior Courses and Methods. 

Our courses are characterized by thoroughness and sim- 
plicity. Our commercial tests receive the highest endorse- 
ment of business men and are used by leading commercial 
colleges of the country. The work is intensely practical, and 
is based on experience with actual conditions in the business 
world. Perhaps the most valuable feature of, the work is 
the scientific blending of theory and practice. The student 
no sooner receives instruction in certain principles than he 


puts them into practice in actual work. His accomplishment 
must always measure up to this theory. 

Unokk? qjing QIourBr 


Including Bookkeeping, Single and Double Entry, Office 
Practice, Business Penmanship, Rapid Calculation, Business 
Correspondence, English Grammar, Commercial Arithmetic, 
Commercial Law, Business Forms and Customs. 

Bookkeeping, being the science of accounts, is the prin- 
cipal and most laseinating branch of the Bookkeeping 
course. We teach this just as it is practiced in business 
life, giving actual work instead of theory. This subject is 
made practical and the student is taught system and busi- 
ness from the beginning. After receiving necessary books, 
stationery, etc., he commences a Retail Grocery Business. 
Early in his course he opens an account with College Bank 
and deposits his capital. He rents a store and has a lease 
drawn up in proper form. He orders a stock of goods, and 
when they are received he insures them by applying for and 
receiving an insurance policy, in payment of which he 
draws his check on College Bank. 

The student now proceeds to do a mercantile business. 
He buys and sells for cash, on account, and for note ; gives 
and receives notes, checks, drafts, statements, receipts, or- 
ders, etc. He enters into a partnership, draws up articles of 
agreement, bonds, mortgages, deeds, leases, bills of sale, 
makes the final settlement, dissolves the partnership, closes 
the books, and finds the gains and losses. The books used 
in the advanced part of the course are : Day Book, Journal, 
Ledger, Cash book, Journal Day book, Invoice, Sales Com- 
mission, Sales book, Six. column Journal and Bill book. 

As auxiliaries are used, the check, note, draft, bill, receipt 
and shipment books. In addition to the above, we wish to 
state that our course in American National Banking is un- 

The other objects included in this course are given special 
attention and satisfactory examinations on all are required 
of the student for graduation.

Our course in penmanship is designed to train students 
to write a style of penmanship that will pass the critical 
inspection of the man of husiness. It is free from orna- 
mental feature, which require more time and energy. Yet 
there is in its very simplicity a grace and beauty that 
make it unmistakably an ideal style. In this course, as in 
all our other courses, the practical side is always the impor- 
tant one — the one that receives our best efforts. 

There is a feature of this course which we wish to empha- 
size — our method of teaching penmanship. Our method gets 
results. With us results is the only true tests of efficiency. 
No amount of copying from set forms will ever produce a 
rapid and legible style of writing. The ability to write cor- 
rectly and rapidly can only be obtained through correct 
teaching and faithful practice under a competent teacher. 

Realizing fully the requirements, and employing only the 
best teachers obtainable, it is but natural that our students 
a] e uniformly successful in acquiring a style of penmanship 
that wins the approval of business men. 

imperial iprrnnanship (Banter 

Those desiring and showing a special aptness for Penman-

Theory and Practice of Shorthand, including Typewrit- 
ing, English Grammar, Spelling, Punctuation, Letter Copy- 
ing and Piling, Manifolding and general practical work. 

We teach the Gregg system of Shorthand, the acknowl- 
edged king of the winged art. It now holds the record for 
combined speed and legibility. We teach it because we be- 
lieve it to be the best. 

In the study of shorthand and typewriting, and more es- 
pecially in their practice, a knowledge of English grammar 
and spelling are essential. We do not overlook the fact that 
a good English education is a prerequisite to a good and 


competent shorthand writer, hence our course is so arrang- 
ed as to give the student such instruction in these funda- 
mental studies as will make success sure. Some students 
1 ave become proficient and capable stenographers who en- 
ten d school with but little education as grammarians or 
spellers, but by hard work have acquired a good knowledge 
of both, and commanded good paying positions. All de- 
pends upon the willingness of the student to work ; for we 
.-'hall have none but the best of teachers, whose whole effort 
will be devoted to helping the student to succeed. 

In addition to training him thoroughly in all the es- 
sentials in taking shorthand notes according to the best 
practices, he is given a wide experience in transcribing a 
I road range of matter — business letters and commercial 
documents, law papers, editorials, court testimony, legisla- 
tive proceedings, and every other variety of matter which 
the modern stenographer is called upon to transcribe. The 
result is that students leave this school with not only a high 
degree of technical skill in both shorthand and typewriting, 
but have accumulated an experience and fund of general 
knowledge that enables them to undertake at the very out- 
set of their careers work which ordinarily would require the 
services of stenographers of years experience. 

We teach our students to operate and take care of the 
various standard makes of typewriters, such as the Rem- 
ington, Smith-Premier, Oliver, etc. Either the sight or 
touch method will be taught. Special attention is given to 
Business and Law Forms, Tabulating, Spacing and Mani- 
folding. Accuracy and speed in letter-writing, both from 
the shorthand notes and from direct dictation on the ma- 
chine, is made an important part of this course. 

Individuality of Instruction. 

It is the business of each member of our Faculty to take 
the intellectual measure of every student he comes in con- 
tact with, and to adapt his methods so thoroughly to that 
particular students' needs that his powers may be trained 
in order of their importance — weak spots strengthened, er- 
rors in judgment corrected, temperamental tendencies 
rightly directed — till he leaves us with a well balanced 


equipment. The school work is adapted to his needs, not his 
needs to those of the school. Our teachers are selected 
because of their known ability to effect these results, and 
we make it to their interest to work untiringly to this end. 

Time Required. 

This is a point upon which there is more deception prac- 
ticed by unscrupulous teachers than any other entering into 
the commercial training. All depends upon the aptness of 
the student, and his equipment at the time of entrance. 
Some students have been able to master the bookkeeping 
course in from three and one-half to five months, but the 
majority require from five to seven months, The same ap- 
plies to the shorthand and typewriting. 


There was a time in the history of commercial education 
when proprietors of business schools, less honest than they 
were aggressive, guaranteed unqualifiedly a position to 
every student. But that time has passed, the reason being 
that students soon come to recognize that such statements 
did not amount to anything unless made by responsible 
people and responsible people would not make them. This 
is an educational institution. "We make no statements that 
we are not always ready to "make good." "We do not guar- 
antee positions, nor can any school honestly do so, but it is 
a fact that we have never had a graduate of this School to 
fail to secure lucrative employment within a reasonable 
time. No student who comes here and completes satisfac- 
torily anv of our courses, and proves by his disposition and 
conduct that he is worthy of confidence, need have any fear 
of not obtaining a position. The demand for competent 
workers in all lines always outruns the supply. This school 
is ever on the alert in the interest of its pupils. We do 
all we can for our pupils, and are proud to say that they are 
our friends and our best advertisements. We obtain more 
pupils through old ones than in any other way. 

Our whole organization is directed, first, to producing an 
unequaled product, and, second, to marketing it. It is by 


holding strictly to these two rules that this school has at- 
tained the high place it now occupies. 

Special Privileges. 

Our students have many privileges not found in "the 
actual business college," such as library, lecture course, 
debating, literary societies, and association with the great 
number of college students, also with the teachers, who are 
college and university graduates. By these advantages stu- 
dents gain a large fund of general information, culture, ele- 
gance and refinement, the value of which can not be, over-,

The aim of the School of Music is to give a broad and 
thorough musical education, founded on the best methods 
and latest ideas in use in the best conservatories in this 

In estimating the resources and possibilities of our col- 
lege, the department of music holds an important position. 
It is the aim of the trustees and faculty to promote in- 
creased activity and interest in this arc. Music is in fact 
the most popular and the most generally practised of all the 
fine arts. It is every where recognized as an educational 
force and direct means of culture, ennobling human emo- 
tions and unfolding the spiritual nature. 

From the elementary grades to the most advanced work, 
the instruction given is adapted to the individual needs of 
the student, by the best works in the realm of musical lit- 
erature. It will be the aim of the instructors in each de- 
partment to train the students to be musicians with a thor- 
ough understanding of the fundamental principles of the 
art, rather than mere executants. The literary advantages 
offered in the college classes are open to the music students, 
and all are urged to avail themselves of the opportunity to 
secure that breadth of culture which is essential to all suc- 

Albert E. Muilberger, B. M., of Chicago, the Director, is 
an instructor of exceptional ability and large experience 
in conservatory work. By right of training and profes- 
sional standing he is well fitted for the position. 

Prof. Muilberger is an exponent of the Mason system of 
"Touch and Technic," as also of the "Leohitetsky Method" 
of piano playing. 

Piano. — The course in Piano extends over seven grades, 
and a Post Graduate course, covering the entire range of 
piano playing. Especial attention will be given to cultivat- 
ing the pure legato or singing tone, as well as to the'devel- 
opment of flexible wrists and fingers — a necessary prep- 
aration for advanced work in single note, chord and octave 

Voice. — True cultivation of the voice consists in the de- 


velopment of pure tone, and its easy natural use and con- 
trol in singing ; correct use of the breath, intonation, attack, 
legato and accent. Phrasing and enunciation are the lead- 
ing features of technical drill. 

Organ. — Instruction on this instrument wll be made thor- 
oughly practical and designed to qualify the student for 
a churcli position. Arrangements for Pipe Organ lessons 
can be made aside from the regular course, on application 
to the Director. 

Harmony and Theory. — Theory of Music is to be taken 
in conjunction witb the study of harmony. The course re- 
quires two years. The value of these studies cannot be over 
estimated. Their relation to music is the same as Grammer, 
and Rhetoric is to language. In these studies are found the 
fundamental principles of the science of music. 

History of Music. — To cover the entire range of the His- 
tory of music requires a two years' course. The study is 
made attractive as well as instructive by a series of short 
papers prepared by the students from topics assigned, and 
a series of short biographies, the best of which are selected 
for reading in connection with the public recitals. This 
requires considerable reading and literary work beside the 
work in the text book. 

Kecitals. — The demand today is for practical results. 
Public criticism is needed to ascertain true merit, and for 
this reason pupils will be required to make public appear- 
ances in pupil's recitals. Seniors are required to give a re- 
cital for graduation. All students must attend these re- 

General Information. — Pupils are assigned practice peri- 
ods and are graded on their punctuality, faithfulness, and 
general deportment. 

The practice rooms are for the exclusive use of the stu- 
dents of music and visitors are forbidden entering these 
rooms. No student will be permitted to appear at any pub- 
lic performance without having secured permission from 
the Director.

The study of Expression is the study of Literature and of 
Life in its truest and deepest sense. One can not express 
more than one feels. 

Our aim is to teach the student to feel the beauty of that 
which she is to express and to guide her to an intelligent in- 
terpretation of the same. To this end the course is care- 
fully arranged as follows : 

First Year. 

The Elements of Expression. — A definite, progressive 
method of instruction will be used, providing the student 
with a basis for intelligent criticism and definite knowledge 
in instructing others. 

This course includes, Literary Interpretation, Vocal Cul- 
ture, Gesture, Platform Deportment, Freshman English, etc. 

Second Year. 

Dramatic and Platform Art. — Prose forms and poetic 
forms of literature. Study of Shakespeare 's Plays and Dra- 
matic Poetry. Literary Analysis. Sophomore English. 

Third Year. 

Further study of Shakespeare's Plays. The History of 
Oratory. Normal Work. Personal Development. School 
Management. Junior English.

Dates of Payments. — Payments are due quarterly, in ad- 
vance on the following dates : September 13th, November 
10th, January 22d, and March 27th. 

Four weeks constitute a school month ; nine weeks a 
quarter ; eighteen weeks a term ; thirty-six weeks a school 
year. Tuition and board are charged upon this basis. 

Tuition in the Ministerial Course is free of charge to all 
ministers, and all young men preparing for the ministry, re- 
gardless of denomination, on satisfactory recommendation. 
Write for conditions before coming. 

Tuition in the Literary Course is free to children of all 
ministers of the gospel, irrespective of denomination. 

If a student is compelled to leave on account of pro- 
tracted sickness, or other unavoidable circumstance, before 
the expiration of the time for which he has paid, a due bill

time later. This is the practice of all Colleges of high 
standing. No allowance will be made in tuition for less than 
a month's absence, or for board for less than a week. 

No pupil is permitted to exchange one study for another, 
or to abandon a study, except by consent of the President.
